Having Children in a Climate Crisis: Films and Panel Discussion

May 31, 2023
8:00 pm
- 9:00 pm EDT

On May 31, Moms Clean Air Force will join Climate Psychology Alliance of North America and Climate Mental Health Network to explore the ways climate change is affecting our mental health in relation to decisions about family building. Attendees will watch two documentary films: The Climate Baby Dilemma, which will be available to screen before the event, and Gen Z Mental Health: Climate Stories, which is an 8-minute film that will be screened for the audience during the event. The event will feature a panel discussion with the filmmakers, leading experts in the field of climate change and mental health, and a climate psychology clinician. The conversation will make room for a range of experiences, and both parents and people without children are welcome.
